Philadelphia 76ers vs Milwaukee Bucks.
Stadium: Fiserv Forum (Milwaukee).
There’s talk that Ben Simmons’ market value is dropping by the hour, but that doesn’t seem to be stopping Philadelphia anymore, with the team looking more and more confident without all those nerves. Budenholzer is tackling another plan, how to patch up all the holes in the roster without losing too much. Nevertheless, it’s a top sign for the East, especially with the recent developments in the Philadelphia lineup.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
There are a lot of core rotation players injured, with only the returning Jrue Holiday gaining fitness. Milwaukee have lost four of their last five games, but the reigning champions will not want to take a three-game losing streak in a row. Portis and Connaughton have been steady despite all these illness and injury issues, contributing 10 points per game, Grayson Allen is putting up 14.5 points in 10 games, and Holiday is not the last player in the system. Giannis Adetokunbo is still the best player in the paint at his position, which sometimes seems like an impossible task to deal with.
Philadelphia, a long-suffering side that seems to have stopped suffering for Ben Simmons, have accepted the simple truth, the team is more than one player, albeit a very gifted one. And gave us the feeling from match to match that we could see this team in the East final at least. 4 wins in 5 games, and the team is also starting to feel quite comfortable at home: 4 wins in the last six home games. But once again, COVID seems to be making some adjustments. How Doc Rivers will respond to this quarantine is very unclear. Embiid, Thybulle, Harris, and Isaiah Joe are all on the covid protocol out of action. Curry, Drummond, Korkmaz, and Tyrese Maxey - time for them to prove themselves.
Expert Betting Tips
In the absence of Embiid, Philadelphia are a very different team. There’s just a huge question of how to play with Giannis, stop him, and just the number of losses in the rotation and starting lineup looks irreplaceable for Philadelphia so far, especially with such an opponent. We suggest considering the following betting options:
- Handicap 2 (-6.5) for 1.90;
- Individual Total 1 Under (105.5) for 2.20;
- Individual Total 2 Over (113.5) for 1.91.
